It is 2008 and I was asked to improve my previous slide show for use as a display in a tent during Nye County Earth Day's celebration in Pahrump, Nevada.
I tried making all my photos that had anything to do with the Amargosa River into a video slide show. It did not work until I broke it into five sections.
So here are the 5 "silent films" that tell something about the Amargosa River and Death Valley.
I suggest downloading them before playing them. They are rather large.
Note that the versions posted in late March have been replaced with new versions.
These updates were completed just after midnight the morning of April 10. And part two finally works the morning of April 12. (It was a problem with the way I wrote the link, sorry.) Please excuse my typos in several places, this was all late evening work.
